Fleet News

Another issue viewing on my mobile at present is the Sapphire article isn't appearing in the Arriva section and the X66 StreetLite's article doesn't appear in the GNE section either.

Only seeing these two articles if I press news at the top of the screen and get the page where I get one article with the 3 operators below.

The same applies to the "Transit Fleet Movements" article in the Stagecoach section, too.

Liam already knows about this - he's just deciding the best way to match the design from desktop view to mobile view. If he was to include the photograph again, it would be quite a lot of scrolling which isn't particularly user-friendly on mobiles.
Will the fleet news ever reappear?

Thank You
Where's Scott Cooper (tyresmoke) when you need him? Usually he is good at this he used to do something similar on his old site I sometimes used to share the links very often whenever there was an update

I miss Jeff's Bus Lane that site I enjoyed

Scott couldn't update the Fleet News even if I asked him to do it - the system behind the scenes is undergoing reconstruction to allow a new and improved system to be implemented.

The new system will automatically update the fleet news and fleet lists together as one, and updates won't occur on a set day when the new system is rolled out. It will be a live news feed.

I cant see it as I'm on 4001 again by coincidence.
Some of the buses on the GNE fleet list has also being updated with the new style - example is 6099 - http://northeastbuses.co.uk/fleet/gnefle...eetno=6099 - this shows the connection between the news and fleet when the news is updated.

Liam posted something similar to this before but later deleted it for whatever reason.  Huh

Aye, Dan and Liam see to be doing well with this news/fleet update... should be a lot easier to follow when the fleet news is updated and then is automatically put in the news section.
Ooo Friend, Bus Friend.
I like the idea of linking the two, and the live format certainly works well for the mainstream fleet news. The only thing I'm wondering is how things like launch events, rallies, etc, will work?

Feels not right without the photos I liked it with photos eg when the photo comes up it usually says eg Courtesy of Steven Hodgson
The whole Arriva fleet list when you click them say they are GNE someone has been messing around too much...

That's an easy fix - it's just a case of Liam copying and pasting the coding having made it for the Go North East fleet lists...

It's still very much a work in progress.
I know you're still in early stages of the fleet/news merger but i noticed today, that the news has being set out like the fleet list history... i'm wondering will news show which bus has being repainted etc.. example from the news as it is now:

2 HOURS FROM NOW
This vehicle has been sold to Stagecoach South, having been previously listed for disposal at Hartlepool Depot.

Just saves me asking millions of questions haha
